Yeah, this is a little late but I had important things to say Monday!🤣
Last week was part awesome and part rough. So does that mean it was roughly awesome or awesomely rough? Choices.
So let’s get into it. Mostly because I can’t remember what else I did last week.
Monday- 7 miles
I was in a weird mood after work. Part of me wanted to run and part didn’t. I headed out and honestly thought I would turn around at the 5k mark. Except I kept running. And running. And ended up doing 7 miles after work. Who knew?!? I actually might have kept on running but I had a late start so it was getting dark and I was wearing all black.
Tuesday- 3 miles
I knew my schedule was a little wacky for the week so I headed out for some nice recovery miles on Tuesday. They actually felt pretty good.
Instead of exercising physical muscles, I had to exercise the social ones for work. So much harder.
Here’s where things kind of derailed. I woke with a little headache on Thursday morning but it turned into a raging migraine by the end of work. Friday was more of the same. In fact by the time work was over, I had that watery eyed, teary look from the pain.
Sunday- 4 miles
I meant to run 8 miles for my long run but I knew my body wasn’t quite there. I was still feeling the migraine fog and just felt off. I headed out and told myself to do what I could. My legs felt ok but I was having massive heart burn issues that made everything uncomfortable. I am less than impressed with this medication change.
14 ish miles for the week. Better than last week but not great.
How as your week? Last week or this one?
